Whether you're looking for a quiet spot to relax or a bustling beach town with plenty of activities, you'll find it here. But in order to experience everything that this region has to offer on both land and sea, you’ll need a yacht rental in the Algarve. Adventurers can go rock climbing or hiking in the hills of Monchique, kayaking through the caves of Benagil or even swimming with dolphins in Zoomarine! Culture lovers can explore the Moorish ruins at Silves Castle or stroll through the old town of Tavira and see its cobbled streets and whitewashed houses.

With so much to see and do in this beautiful region of Portugal, it’s easy to see why it remains one of Europe’s top holiday destinations year after year! So, what are you waiting for? Rent a yacht in the Algarve and have a once-in-a-lifetime holiday that will leave you breathless.


How much does it cost to charter a boat in the Algarve?

The cost of a boat charter in the Algarve will differ based on a number of factors such as the time of year, how many people are on board and the size and type of vessel that you choose. Here are some average prices of a yacht charter in the Algarve by boat type.

What is the best time of year for a yacht rental in the Algarve?

The best time of year for an Algarve yacht rental is between April and November when it is warm and sunny but with little to no rainfall. Of course, the summer months are the warmest and attract the most tourists so if you don't mind slightly cooler temperatures, we'd recommend visiting in May or September when it is less crowded.  

What can I see and do with my yacht rental in the Algarve?

If you’re looking for things to do in the Algarve, you’ll quickly learn that it has something for everyone. With your Algarve yacht rental, you can experience outdoor activities like surfing and snorkelling to cultural experiences like guided tours of historic towns and landmarks. Here are some of our recommendations!

Take a day trip:

One of the most popular day trips is to the town of Tavira, known for its cobbled streets, churches and fortresses. Visitors can take a boat trip along the River Gilão and explore some of the amazing wildlife in its estuaries, or wander through the old cobbled streets of the city centre.

Another exciting day trip is a visit to Sagres – a rugged peninsula on Portugal’s western coast. Here you will find some of Europe’s most stunning coastal scenery, as well as some incredible surfing spots. It’s also home to one of Portugal’s oldest fortresses, so be sure to check it out while you’re there!

Finally, why not take a trip out to Cape St Vincent – Europe’s most south-westerly point. This is one of Portugal’s most iconic attractions with stunning views across land and sea alike. You can even visit the lighthouse here which has been standing since 1846!

Tour the towns in the region:

Faro - Faro is the capital of the Algarve and is a great place to start your exploration of this region. The city has a beautiful old town, as well as a stunning beach which is perfect for relaxing or enjoying a spot of people-watching.

Albufeira - Albufeira is the perfect place to base yourself when visiting the Algarve. With its bustling nightlife and gorgeous beaches, this town never fails to disappoint. Plus, it's close to many other popular destinations in the area, so you can easily day trip from here.

Lagos - If you're looking for something a bit more adventurous, Lagos is the place to go. With its dramatic cliffs and rocky coves, this town offers some spectacular sailing conditions.

Quinta do Lago - If you're looking for something a bit more luxurious, Quinta do Lago is the place for you. 

Vilamoura - Vilamoura is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Algarve, and it's easy to see why. With its world-class marina, beautiful beaches and lively nightlife, there's something for everyone here.

Go to the beach:

Sail to the gorgeous beach of Praia da Oura, located in the town of Portimão. This is one of the most popular beaches in the Algarve as it's a great place to swim, sunbathe and enjoy a drink at one of the many beach bars. For a more upscale beach experience, go to Praia da Falesia in Vilamoura and for a secluded beach, Praia do Carvalho in Albufeira.


Should I have a skipper on board my private boat charter in the Algarve?

If you’re considering a private yacht charter in the Algarve, you can find a large fleet at Scansail which includes vessels with and without a skipper. Even if you have a licence to sail we always recommend choosing a vessel with a skipper. This is because skippers are nautical experts that will dock, anchor and sail the vessel for you so that you can relax and enjoy your family or friends on board. Skippers are also usually locals of the area, which means that they will take you to all of the top spots on your itinerary, as well as some hidden gems you might not have known about otherwise.


What type of boat should I choose for my yacht rental in the Algarve?

If you’re wondering which type of vessel you should choose for your boat charter, you should tink about which type of holiday you’re looking to have. For a shorter trip, you should opt for a daily charter such as a RIB or a motorboat. For longer holidays we’d recommend a weekly rental such as a catamaran or a yacht, which is fully equipped with all of the amenities you’ll need to accommodate you throughout your stay. If you’re an avid sailor who likes the challenge of navigating the wind and the waves, you might like to choose a sailboat however, they aren’t recommended for novice sailors or people who are prone to seasickness.

No matter which sort of vessel you’re looking for, you’re sure to find the perfect one to make your sailing trip in the Algarve a successful one!
